La Fondue is always a good place to catch up with friends. The experience is unique, the food is pretty good, and it’s always un-rushed. However, this time I was a bit disappointed. The boar was very tough, we only ate one piece each. The corkage fee is too steep. I understand they are in the business of making money off of their wine list; but charging $30 corkage fee is more than most hi-end restaurants. They also do not have a full bar anymore and cannot put creme de minthe in my chocolate fondue. 😩 The rest of the meal and service were as expected with good food & good staff. Will I go back? Of course, but I’ll either check to see if they have a corkage free night or plan to buy theirs.

I have always wanted to go to la Fondue, so my boyfriend got me a groupon deal for a Christmas present. The groupon deal was great, to pay full price for what they offer would not be worth it. I was expecting more fondue types of dishes, not a plate of meat (we cook ourselves) and dip into a bbq sauce???? The salad was delicious. The fondu was good, even though it was not the one we ordered. The dessert was very good! Our tables location was terrible! I sat on a hill at an angle in a plastic chair...very uncomfortable for the price of the menu. We had to use our light on our cell phone just to see how the meat was looking while it was cooking....again, not worth it. Our servers were wonderful and very informative so that was a huge plus. However, at the end of our meal we get a hand written suggested tiping amount? I do not need to be told what you think the tipping amount should be when we are the ones being served. For that alone we chose to leave a smaller tip. I can now say I have been to La Fondue, and won’t be back.

I honestly was disappointed with the serving of the sampler meat. I noticed that they reduced the serving size for each sample of meat they had since the last time I was there. Cheese and chocolate was good, but it was still a smaller portion. There is NOTHING special about the meat they serve. Anyone can cook better meat than what they cook. The only thing that was worth it was the cheese and chocolate fondue. And the sceneries.

Our servers were both very nice and attentive. The food was really good. However, I find the restaurant to be a little dark and loud.

Came for my birthday and was not dissapointed, can’t stop thinking about the bacon cheese fondue! It’s a must for anyone in the area, make reservations of course! Mine was for 9:15 and they let me in at 8:30, super flexible and kind.

What a phenomenal experience! The wild mushroom fondue was deliciously rich and flavored, and the dark chocolate fondue with cayenne pepper with cinnamon was the perfect finish to a truly lovely meal. Thank you!

Service could have been better. Had to chase the server down a few times as she did not check back after initially delivery food to see if we needed anything else.

We were given a grupon for Christmas. I hadn't been to the new location before. The parking is difficult but the restaurant is quite eclectic and interesting. Our waiter was excellent very friendly and attentive his partner Michelle was very sweet. We really enjoyed this experience and would definitely do it again. Maybe as a family get together would be fun!
